Safehaven has been refurbished with the disabled visitor in mind. The aim has been to provide extra comfort by providing equipment that is practical yet unobtrusive. From the grab rails in the bathroom beside the WC and in the shower area, to the shower chair that can be manoeuvred easily around the wetroom; from the portable tilting table and kitchen trolley to the removable bed hoist, careful thought has been given to making things possible and comfortable.
In the twin bedroom, one of the single beds is an electric rise and recline care bed, with cot sides. This bed has a foam mattress. A portable monkey pole is available for use on any of the beds, and a rise and recline bath seat is also available, on request, for no extra charge.
We also recognise that people often have more specialised needs and so a portable hoist and single size air mattress are available to hire from a local company. Prices are calculated depending on what you require and the length of your stay.
We also have a self propelled shower wheelchair with commode facility for the wetroom. Some guests may find this easier than the shower chair on wheels as the arms are removable on the wheelchair, making transfer much easier.
Please let us know your requirements with regard to any special items you may need at time of booking. You are also more than welcome to bring your own, if you prefer.
For those guests who need but do not have a carer available to assist them on their holiday, we now have a link with a service providing professional carers in the area.
